Splendid nativity performances, Christmas lunch and a visiting panto!

From the Head's Office

Oh, the weather outside is frightful...but the magic of Christmas has been sparkling brightly in the Pre-Prep this week! A wonderful nativity brought Christmas cheer to us all, with splendid performances from the Early Years children who performed "A Squash and a Christmas Squeeze" and PP1-3's performance of "Straw and Order". A few photographs can be found below with a wider range on display in the Pre-Prep. Please do add your name to the list on the board to request any to be emailed to you.
















Everyone looked suitably jolly in their Christmas jumpers for our Christmas lunch yesterday and much fun was had jingling bells, comparing the tunes our jumpers sang and admiring Mrs Morse's flashing lights! Thank you to the kitchen staff for a delicious meal which was enjoyed by all.

A hilarious panto by Thirks Rural Arts on Tuesday had the children in fits of giggles and poor Mrs Barlow donning some rather pongy pants! Afraid I'm not allowed to share the photos this time!

We hope you are able to join us for the 'Children's Carol Service' on Wednesday at 9.15am. Coffee will be served in the dining room at 9am.

Finally, on behalf of everyone in the Pre-Prep, we wish you all a wonderful Christmas. May your holidays be merry and bright!

With best wishes,

Susie Drake, Head of Pre-Prep
